News Snippets

Three pieces of news:


1. As many of you will know, I will be interviewed, on Thursday 12 January, by Ariadne Sawyer, regarding my poetry.

The interview (which will include me reading a couple of my poems) will take place at 1:40 pm PST (9:40 pm UK time) and will be broadcast on Vancouver Co-Op Radio

2. I have added a widget enabling readers to follow me by email. I was prompted to do so as a consequence of an email from a follower who indicated that they would prefer to follow my site in this manner, rather than by utilising the WordPress Reader.

The option to keep up with posts by email is useful not only for those WordPress followers who prefer it to the Reader, but also enables people who don’t wish to create a gravatar profile to keep track of posts via messages delivered to their inbox (not everyone wants to create a Gravatar let alone a WordPress blog)!

3. I am working on the production of a CD featuring me reading my poetry. If you are interested in obtaining a copy please email me at newauthoronline (at) gmail dot com (the address is rendered thus in order to defeat spammers).

When emailing please put “poetry CD” in the subject line.

  1. Let's CUT the Crap!

    Congratulations. You’re off to a great start.
    About the email, I’ve wanted to mention the same to bloggers I’d like to follow instead of via Reader. I found a way around it by typing in the comment area. MOST of the time two check boxes appear:
    – Notify me of new comments via email
    – Notify me of new posts by email (or something like that)

      Thanks Tess. You make a good point about the 2 check boxes appearing when you type in a comment. I suspect that the lack of an obvious way to follow a site by email sometimes loses the blogger potential subscribers, especially in those instances where the reader is not a WordPress user and has no desire to become one.
